    Per the 29th edition of the Blue Book by S.P. Fjestad page 2145 lists 1972 as the first year for models 120/1200/1300. Approx. last ser. number for that year was L739617.

    I don't know when the 1200 was introduced but the letter prefix (L) began after the Gun Control Act of 1968.

    Your ser. number certainly seems to indicate a much earlier gun.

    Maybe someone else has more complete resourses.

    I purchased one in 1977 which was numbered just over one million.
